It'd be nice if some options on the qemu command line (or config file)
resulted in the guest kernel getting entropy (assuming a kernel with
the appropriate support), without having to run a special
entropy-injection daemon in the guest.

virtio-console can be used for that, but it'd be necessary to have a
way to tell the guest kernel to treat that particular device as an
entropy source.  Even just a standard name.
